Every year people all over the globe give up their vices for Lent, whether this is abstaining from chocolate, going without alcohol, or no longer indulging in unhealthy snack foods.
Lent is a Christian festival, traditionally involving the giving up of rich foods between Ash Wednesday and Easter. However, people now use the period to give up a variety of bad habits, to test their resolve and give their bodies a break. You no longer have to be religious to give something up for the forty days.
If you are looking to quit smoking this year why not try during this year’s Lent period? A time for new beginnings and fresh starts, there seems no better time to finally stop smoking cigarettes than with the promise of spring not far away.
